About

I was the editor of Canada's progressive, independent This Magazine for five years. Before that, I worked as a reporter, editor and writer in the Arctic for several years, living in Yellowknife, and travelling Canada’s territories and northern Alberta to write about everything from prisons to the Peel Valley. My personal essays tackle the world and my experiences in it, often through a not-so-rosy feminist lens. My feature work has been recognized several times at the National Magazine Awards, including four honorable mentions, one silver and, in 2015, a gold in the personal journalism category for my Toronto Life piece "Save me From My Workout." I've taught long-form writing at Humber College and have a Master of Fine Arts in Creative Non-Fiction from the University of King's College. My work has most recently appeared in Toronto Life, Flare, Hazlitt and The Walrus.

My first book F-Bomb: Dispatches from the War on Feminism was released in Fall 2017 in Canada and Spring 2018 in the U.S.
